Erik ten Hag could allow Manchester United forward Jadon Sancho to leave on loan in January
Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag could let Jadon Sancho leave the club on loan in the upcoming transfer window, according to TEAMtalk (h/t Mirror).
The Dutch manager would allow the 22-year-old to go on a temporary move away from the Red Devils in order to regain his confidence. Premier League rivalshttp://weallfollowunited.com/tag/Erik-ten-Hag Chelsea are one of the clubs eyeing a move for the England international.
However, a move to the Blues has been ruled out by the Old Trafford side. The Manchester-based club are fighting with the Stamford Bridge side this season for a top-four spot in the league.
Sancho made his way through the youth ranks at Manchester City before moving to Borussia Dortmund. In Germany, the 22-year-old built the reputation of being one of the most creative forwards in football.
Subsequently, United pounced on the England international’s signature in the summer of 2021. However, since then, he has mostly underwhelmed at the Manchester-based club.
In the previous campaign, Sancho made 38 appearances for the Red Devils in all competitions, scoring five goals and providing three assists. He failed to make an impact in a red shirt.
However, the 22-year-old started the new season in fine form. The forward seemed to have found his feet under Erik ten hag. Unfortunately, the England international has failed to remain consistent.
Sancho has lost his place in the Red Devils’ starting lineup in recent fixtures. The 22-year-old also missed out on Gareth Southgate’s 26-man squad for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
The England international now faces a lot of competition at the Old Trafford side. While Cristiano Ronaldo has left, Anthony Martial is back from injury. On the other hand, Antony and Alejandro Garnacho have also performed well for Ten Hag when they have been called upon.
